CHICAGO — The family of a deceased infant has filed a wrongful death claim against Rush University Medical Center;
Affiliated Radiologists, S.C ; and doctors, identified as Joy Sclamberg, M.D. and Shawn Davies, M.D.; alleging negligence in medical care.
Armin Quinonez Jr., independent administrator of the estate of Diego Quinonez Ochoa, filed a complaint on Oct. 11 in the Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that they failed to provide proper medical care to Diego Quinonez Ochoa.
